Abstract

A single-longitudinal-mode ErYb:glass laser with a linewidth of 90 kHz is demonstrated by locking the laser wavelength to 1552.6 nm with a bulk glass Bragg grating. Using a piezoelectric actuator, the wavelength could be tuned over a range of 0.25 nm ( 31 GHz ) in steps of 17 pm ( 2.1 GHz ) , with an output power of a few milliwatts.
